So one would think... now that the caps solution has been suggested and solved, it still does not associate any abbreviation. Both the band abbreviation (why is that word so long?!?!) and the date are blank, so is there something wrong with the way I labelled the directory? The way I see it, its hard to associate the abbreviation if none is being entered to associate, ya know?

Thoughts? Comments? Theories?

I am not an admin, but I know this is due to needing a dash (-) after band abbreviations with numbers.

Same problem here...

Directory: /56HR2003-05-30.flac
Band Abbreviation:
Show Date: 1969--

The abbreviation is not yet associated with any artist. If the band or artist that performed this concert already has an entry in the list of bands, you can associate this abbreviation with a band. Otherwise you will have to add the band.

I have no idea what to do... i clicked on the "associate this abbreviation with a band" link but got nothing. any ideas?

the band name is 56 Hope Road

Ethan is correct, if the band abbreviation includes a Number in it, you need to place a dash between the abbreviation and the year - like this:

56HR-2003-05-30.flac16
-or-
4WF-2004-03-20.flac16

Also, please do not use the .flac extension for folder names - add a 16 for 16 bit recordings (folder.flac16) or a 24 for 24bit recordings (folder.flac24). If you name the folder with just a .flac extension, sometimes the system will think the folder is an audio file and it will cause some issues.
